(Scroll down for video) An evil grandmother killed her son and granddaughter because she came to the conclusion that they are better off dead than alive, according to police in Michigan.

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office said that they have arrested 68-year-old Sylvia Marie Majewska after being accused of killing 29-year-old Daryne Gailey and his 7-month-old daughter Charley.

In court, Majewska pleaded no contest to two counts of second-degree murder.

Oakland County Circuit Judge Denise Langford Morris sentenced Majewska to serve up to 50 years in prison.

According to the police investigation, Majewska came to the conclusion that her disabled son and his daughter would be better off dead than alive.

One morning, Majewska used a knife to cut the throat of her son.

She then used a blunt object to hit her granddaughter in the head.

Majewska then cut her wrists in an attempt to commit suicide.

Police officers who arrived at Majewska’s home found Gailey dead from a slit throat.

Charley was found dead in another room from blunt force trauma to the head.

Majewska was found with slashed wrists.

She was taken to the hospital, where doctors managed to save her life.

Majewska was initially charged with two counts of first-degree murder, but she pleaded to a lesser charge as part of a plea bargain agreement.
